A bit like the classic paradox: the meeting of the immovably stuck, and the irresistible un-sticker.

Re: Lying to You 2021-05-06

Also, last panel, how does a mask blush? This isn't her glamor but a retaining mask to keep things protected (now what is protected from what/whom is debatable). An extra-price factory option, involving sensors on the back side, embedded processing electronics, and a layer of synthetic chromatophor...

Something Unbueno 2021-05-03

When a squid-face eldritch being feels an ominous chill run down her spine, you can probably infer that something a trifle disturbing is in the offing.

And, crossbar exercise has a definite advantage over a sail on a tall ship - it's much less likely to cause motion sickness.

OK I have problems keeping up with which character goes with which group. Was Devyn part of Atsali's class, or with the Castela group? She's in Atsali's cohort, but not (if I recall correctly) her class. She was one of the group of freshmen who were nervous about interacting with "leader-of-th...

Re: Sick Day 2021-04-21

If it helps, I've been having issues for .. ever, here in Houston, with allergies. I don't think there's any place we can go, except maybe the Arctic tundra, where there isn't a plant whose pollen causes problems for many of us. I've heard that in some parts of Texas, at some times of the year, the...

Sick Day 2021-04-21

Paul is under the weather and is taking the day off.

Dunno about where anyone else is, but the tree pollen has been brutal here in the SF Bay area the last few weeks. Killer hay fever... just what we don't need in the middle of a respiratory-virus pandemic.

Elder Gods are not going to tolerate being treated with WD-40. Anything so commonplace would be terribly (and perhaps lethally) disrespectful. Lèse-deity, as it were.

Use nothing less than Krytox.

Scarlet could be right.

If the Grid is malfunctioning, how will Bud et al be able to repair it? Can't scarcely shut it down to fix it, without it leaking gods and eldritch horrors all over the place.

Quite the two-pipe problem, Watson!

:o :shock: :?: :!: :roll: Sure, that's an excellent idea. We really didn't need those gigabytes of disk space, or the CPU cycles to use the system. Weird, non-deterministic behavior, erasure of random files, the occasional explosion of a peripheral? Nothing to worry about. (Might as well stick the m...

Re: More Stuff

WWII RAF Recon Spitfires were a pastel pink because their missions were just at sunset, and they blended well into the twilight glow and side lit clouds. That's what the historians would have you believe. I prefer to believe that the RAF was simply responding to wartime shortages, and decided not t...

Carbohydrates must necessarily be in the diet Primarily because, short of being an exclusive carnivore (even cats aren't quite), they are almost impossible to avoid. You can't even season your meat without getting carbohydrates. (Salt is OK.) The US's FDA states a minimum needed amount of carbohydr...

Nothing is more irritating than a wasted worry. All fretted up and nowhere to go. A cautious concern, crumbled and cast aside. Sisterly sympathy, so sorry, not needed.

The bag itself has a season rating of 2 (so cooler nights in summer and spring), but it can also be good enough at temps as low as 5⁰ to 10⁰ C. I'm not sure what that is in Fahrenheit, though I'm sure Arkansas doesn't get that cold very often, except during the worst part of winter. However, if I c...
